  1. I still get my migraines. But not nearly as frequently as I used to before going gluten free. I used to get migraines 2-3 times a week and they were very intense. Now I get one maybe 2 a month and they are most definitely sinus/environmental allergy related.
  2. Both of my kids eat a lot. Neither are overweight. I just make certain there are a lot of "good" foods around for them to eat. Not a lot of junk.
  3. I am also on 50,0000iu a week for low vitamin D. My doctor wrote a prescription for me.
  4. Restaurants In Ohio

    I just received an email from Tommy's Pizza and they are trying to get certified from the Celiac Association to serve a Gluten free pizza.
  5. Thanks so much for that info.....what a wonderful resource.
  6. Since changing to electrosol with the power ball, I have not had any problems with spotting on my dishes and my dishes are clean when they come out of the dishwasher. I love electrosol.
  7. Ohio Gluten Free?

    I'm a little south of Cleveland and approx. 2 hours from Columbus. I would be interested but participation could be questionable based on my schedule. Thanks for asking. Shelli
  8. Mcdonald's Salads

    The dressing that comes with the asian salad states on the packaging that it contains gluten. Shelli
  9. How To Educate A New Dentist

    I work in a Nursing Home, and they order latex free, powder free gloves. I have not had a reaction to these at all. I am fairly new to all of this, not quite a year, but I wear these gloves everytime I am doing anything with a patient. I think I would have had something by this time if there was a problem. I have explained all of this to my dentist and that is what they use on me now. I was aware of the latex allergy/sensitivity, but I was not aware the powder they use contains oat. I'm glad they listened to my requests. That could have been really bad. Shelli
  10. You have to share your recipe with us, it sounds delicious. Let us know how it tastes too!
  11. Mcdonald's Salads

    I get their salads without the chicken. I know the asian salad is made without any chicken added. You have to specifically request that. I also bring my own dressing with me. I don't use their dressings at all. Shelli
  12. Have you tried any of the Envirokids cereal's? I find them quite tasty. I know they are gluten free, but I cannot verify if they would meet the rest of your dietary requirements. Shelli
  13. In addition to my gluten intolerance, I have several autoimmune diseases. One of the big problems I have is severe vitamin d deficiency. I have to take 50,000 units 1 time per week. This is prescription dose. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, if you are lacking in vitamin D, the body cannot absorb calcium. In addition to taking the vitamin d, I also have to take calcium supplements. Your vitamin d levels can be checked with a blood test. It has made a difference with my dental checkups also.
